How to use custom font files with Rails?

I have my Rails Todo app and I'm trying to pretty up the fonts with a custom font file. I made a font directory in my asset pipeline (app/assets/fonts/LeagueSpartan-Bold.otf) and then did the following in my application.css file

    font-family: 'LeagueSpartan';

I also went into my config/application.rb file and added this path:

config.assets.paths << "#{Rails.root}/app/assets/fonts"

There are no path errors in the console and when I inspect the element, it says that the font is being shown and applied, but when I look at the screen, it's exactly the same. Any help or recommendations for fixing this? I can't find proper documentation about it.
